FAI - Villa e Collezione Panza, Varese

4.4
#2 of 19 in Museums in Province of Varese
Set in a massive estate, FAI - Villa e Collezione Panza represents an attractive villa now home to the Saatchi Gallery. The villa went through a number of owners over several centuries before being donated by Giuseppe Panza to the National Trust of Italy. Panza was an avid art collector and the gallery displays his personal collection of American art, including artists like Phil Sims, David Simson, Ruth Ann Fredenthal, Stuart Arends, and Max Cole, among others. Enjoy the contemporary art, as well as the contrasting setting--the villa and the surrounding gardens date back to the 18th century.

  • The outside is beautiful, we were in Varese during the exhibition Robert Wilson tales and it was a little bit weird, at least not to our liking. But outside are beautiful, and the pieces are beautiful.

  • A visit interesting and relaxing, full of ideas, nice to bring children. Nice Park for walking, good proposals for regular exhibitions and great fixed ones. Certainly a showpiece of qs city

  • I was at Villa Panza to visit the exhibition of Bob Wilson, I very like it. Bring a scarf for Winter Tale. The Villa is very beautiful, and there's a discount for traveling with trenord; However walk is a nightmare, the road has no sidewalks. Take the city bus, which stops right outside. By car, there is parking at €2.50 (check the website). The garden is pleasant, even it contains several works of contemporary art

  • Incredible Art Collection by Robert Irwin. Front Staff were very kind and spoke great English. Backpacks are frowned upon so keep them in your vehicle. But overall the Villa was beautiful and the staff was gracious.

  • Love this place! amazing collection of lightings art and beautiful park!
  • Place is great, park is huge and perfect also for kids, exposition area is also pretty big and inside an astonishing villa.
  • Collection of modern and contemporary art very important for a value of international works. Elegant and exclusive restaurant in the style of the conte Panza
